TOKYO, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A Japanese railway company said it plans a Sweets Train service along two lines to bring travelers together with locally produced sweets.

JR Kyushu said the Sweets Train service, planned for a 2015 rollout, will feature specially redesigned Kyushu Railway Co. train cars on the Kyudai Main Line and the Omura Line being reserved for passengers looking to sample some sweets while traveling in Oita and Nagasaki Prefectures, the Kyodo news agency reported Tuesday.

JR Kyushu, which said a ticket price has not yet been determined for the Sweets Train cars, currently offers similar services, including the Take the A-train service, which includes a lounge with a bar.

"With the success of the A-train service, we can be sure that railroad food service will gain popularity," Kyodo quoted a JR Kyushu official as saying. "We believe that customers will return to enjoy different views and a variety of sweets on board. I also think that we could use at least one more line for this service."
